German football star Mesut Ozil has paid for the surgeries of 23 Brazillian children to show thanks for their World Cup hospitality. Ozil had orginally pledged to pay for 11 surgeries before increasing his pledge to 23.
"In watching Klose over the last four tournaments, every goal he has scored has been less about himself and more of a means to an end - a result that wouldn’t arrive until what was likely his final match in a Germany shirt. But when it did, Klose sat stoically, alone on the German bench. At full-time, cameras panned to the German goal machine as he sat motionless next to the pitch. With his medal around his neck, he put his hands to his face while staring blankly at an empty field where his international career likely ended. Like his ability to fly under the radar at this World Cup edition, Klose seemed to act as though what had just happened was inexplicable. At his age, following four World Cup tournaments, the game’s greatest scorer had finally scored the final prize - a fitting end to a legendary career that was easy to miss if you didn’t take pause to realize World Cup greatness was in our midst."
